Se­niors cel­e­brated

Southern Telegraph - - News -

A range of free events and ac­tiv­i­ties will be held across the City of Rock­ing­ham to mark Se­niors Week 2018.

From Novem­ber 11-17 the an­nual na­tional event that cel­e­brates se­niors and recog­nises the pos­i­tive con­tri­bu­tion they have made to their lo­cal com­mu­nity will in­clude nine events at the City’s li­braries and Au­tumn Cen­tre.

Mayor Barry Sam­mels said Se­niors Week was a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity to ac­knowl­edge the con­tri­bu­tion older peo­ple make to the city.

“Se­niors make up a sig­nif­i­cant pro­por­tion of our com­mu­nity, about 16 per cent of all res­i­dents, and the City highly val­ues the con­tri­bu­tion they make to our so­ci­ety,” Mr Sam­mels said.

“Se­niors across our com­mu­nity have played a vi­tal role in help­ing the city be­come the fan­tas­tic place that it is to­day.”
